“I’m not attacking freedom of speech. I’ve been defending my right to stand up against someone who wants to pervert the truth.” Based on the acclaimed book ‘History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier,’ DENIAL recounts acclaimed writer and historian Deborah E. Lipstadt’s (Rachel Weisz) legal battle for historical truth against David Irving (Timothy Spall), who accused her of libel when she declared him a Holocaust denier. In the English legal system, the burden of proof is on the accused, therefore it was up to Lipstadt and her legal team to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust happened.

DENIAL is released in Irish cinemas February 2017.
